Business Elevated Podcast (Season 4 Episode 40)
This podcast series features business and government leaders discussing what it’s like to live and work in the great state of Utah.
This episode features a conversation with Nathan Millecam, co-founder and CEO of Electric Power Systems (EP Systems), and Pete Codella, Go Utah’s managing director of business services. The company recently announced its partnerships with Tokyo-based SkyDrive and U.S.-based Supernal. Together, they are working on electric air vehicles. In other words, a futuristic flying car or flying taxi.
Millecam explains what led him to create EP Systems, the company’s successes and failures, and what it’s like to work with NASA. He defines the term “certifiable system” and why it is the north star that guides everything safety-related in the aviation industry, what led him to establish the company’s roots in Logan, Utah, and the exciting clients EP Systems has worked with (hint: think Magic Kingdom). Millecam also discusses his recent trip to the Farnborough International Air Show in London with Go Utah and World Trade Center Utah representatives, how the Federal Aviation Administration views urban air mobility, and much more.
